GPB is some sorta Texas mutant.

When he's finally driven from office won't be too soon.

I haven't had the interest to research further, but I'm guessing he's gone over to the dark side, aka demoncrats...

Good article on the movement to erase/minimalize the history of the Alamo and Texas.

1911s should be carried openly as God and John Moses Browning (PBUH) intended them to be.

I signed. I first met Jerry almost 40 years ago. He's one of the few basically good ones out there. I hope he does well.

As I explained some time back, in the early stages of the great erasure of Confederate monuments, modern iconoclasm works by converting shrines and relics into mere historical artifacts.


This method of the modern iconoclast is derived from the modern attitude towards history. Moderns think it surpassingly important to preserve the corpse of history: to collect and catalogue its artefacts, to protect its buildings, to arrange its facts in prodigious books. But they are at the same time scared of the ghost of history—of the very idea that there might be traditions to which men owe a debt and feel a duty.


Especially if those traditions don't fit their worldview.........

Just about the right number of Texas patriots required to occupy the Alamo one more time and protect the shrine and cenotaph.

Well we failed at that. The damn Bushes have stranglehold on Texas Republicans. Pretty soon the battle of the Alamo won't even be taught in schools because it offends a certain demographic. http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/37 ... y-in-texas
